My go to recipe when I want a little sweet with my afternoon tea. Pinkies out please.
I love Sunday mornings. For the past five years I head out for the yoga studio to teach at 7AM. Since I am up before hubby and little man, I get the entire morning to myself. I love the quiet and stillness of Sunday mornings and even the roads and my yoga students seems more relaxed. Sundays are my slow down day.

Why are you drawn to practice yoga? The first few times you unroll a yoga mat you might think it is all about learning how to do Downward Facing Dog or perfect your Warrior II. Maybe you just showed up for the neck rub at the very end. After ten years of practicing yoga I sometimes feel like I am still reading page one of a thousand page book.

I cannot believe it has been six months since I last posted anything. My life feels like it has been moving at warp speed lately since finding out my husband and I are expecting our first child.
